not recently. that is also true of michelle obama and vice-president biden. they have a tendency to campaign in the eastern part of the state which is where their political strength has been. host: the president has not been in north carolina since the convention. are people taking notice of that? guest: yes. the president has not campaigned in north carolina since april. governor romney was here a few weeks back, made an appearance in asheville, but that was mainly to have a visit with polygram, a much publicized visit, a visit to convey the message that it was ok for religious conservatives to vote for a mormon. vice-president joe biden has been here several times. so, this has been a battleground state but not a top tier battleground state. clearly, we have not seen the major candidates here, but we have seen a lot of campaigning we have seen something like $80 million spent here in campaign ads. we have seen as much advertising here as most of the major battleground states. not as much as ohio but almost as much as any other state. you cannot turn your television without seeing a politic

about, karen. paul ryan, joe biden both of them hanging out in pennsylvania campaigning. a state that save for sandy and things that have happened with that perhaps relative to it it was considered a blue state. do you think the obama campaign's worried? >> no, i don't. this is one of these examples of what i would call a head fake a little bit. i think the romney campaign is trying to spend a little time and money in there to see if they can shake anything loose. i don't think are going to be able to. i've talked with people in pennsylvania. the biggest problem that mitt romney has in pennsylvania particularly the western start of the state, those bain ads were devastating. that is a part of the state, those are blue-collar workers. when they hear about companies being shut down, jobs being shipped overseas, these corporate raiders, that really had a huge impact there. and that's the kind of thing you just -- you can't undo with a couple of days or so of big advertising. >> okay. quick, tony. >> just real quick. i'm from pennsylvania. there is no early voting in pennsylvania. it

, "vice president joe biden was warned not to expect any bipartisan cooperation on major votes. biden said, i spoke to seven different republican senators who said, joe, i'm not going to be able to help you on anything." his informants said senate minority leader mitch mcconnell had demanded unified resistance. the way it was characterized to me was for the next two years we can't let you succeed in anything. that's our ticket to coming back. what if we took that attitude right there to the storm damage and cleanup? now mitt romney said he's the guy who can reach across the aisle? not according to the most influential in washington, grover norquist. according to norquist, mitt romney is not supposed to do anything except what the republicans tell him to. >> we don't need a president to tell us what direction to go. we know what direction we want to go. we want the paul ryan budget which cuts spending $6 trillion. the republicans in the house passed 24-plus bills that create jobs and opportunity and strip out regulations. we just need a president to sign this stuff. we don't need someone to

changes a little bit. however, biden did the youngstown event today. it was still pretty partisan and there were tough hits on romney but i do think from the two principals, the surrogates will be pretty tough but i think for mitt romney and from barack obama, for the last six days of the campaign, assuming it does start up on wednesday again, i bet it's a slightly different tone. >> i think mother nature might take over. thank you, chuck todd. great reporting and analysis, as always. coming up, we'll continue to track sandy as it bears down on the east coast now under an hour, by the way, from making landfall. it's out there coming close. back with more after this. >>> welcome back to "hardball." there you saw it. did you see that crane going down in manhattan? it's a very powerful tropical storm and an hour from making landfall, sandy is. you just saw a partially collapsed crane there that we got on film and it hangs precariously. rehema ellis is live at the scene. this has become iconic with what is happening with the situation. >> reporter: it really has. the crane is starting
false and not rebutted by biden or obama or clinton or me or those up in toledo. it's been rebutted by chrysler and jeep and they smacked him right out of the gate. i think that will have an affect on the voters in ohio and those who may not have made a decision yet. >> cenk: tim ryan from ohio, thank you for joining us. >> great to be with you. >> cenk: thanks, michael, as well. we'll have more from michael a little bit later. next up we're going to discuss whether obama has gone too far in conceding to the republicans and what he promises he'll concede later and we'll have more on the storm as well. >> obama: i will go to capitol hill. i'll wash john boehner's car. i'll walk mitch mcconnell's dog. politically direct lineup. only on current tv. vote smart. our democracy depends on an informed electorate.

"politicsnation" starts right now with al sharpton. >>> thanks, chris, and thanks to you for tuning in. four days until election day. the real clear politics shows president obama with 47.4% in national polls, mitt romney has 47.3% the new york times 538 blog says that if the election were held today, the president would win 303 electoral votes and romney would win 235. 270 are needed to win the white house. the times blog gives the president an 81% chance of winning the election. romney has a 19% chance. and as of tonight, 25 million people have already voted but long lines are creating a serious situation in some parts of florida. yes, florida all over again. some people are waiting three hours or more to vote and we will be asking why governor rick scott in florida is refusing to extend hours as his predecessors have done. but we start with tonight's lead. the closer. just four days to go and president obama is sprinting to the finish line with a passionate pitch to ohio voters an

. the reason that it comprised one-half of joe biden's two-line campaign slogan for election and why romney tried to race away from the position at the time he held at the time of the crisis, to let the auto industry go through a free fall bankruptcy. now, i supported the auto rescue at the time. i think it's been well handled by the obama administration. there's something more bizarre that after the first term, the president ended the war in iraq, passed landmark reform and a health care bill that is the most significant piece in year, a bill that gives each american access to health insurance for the first time. after all that, the president's re-election would come to rest at the execution of a package initiated by george w. bush in the last days of his time in office. imagine getting in a time machine and going back to the mall in 2009 and telling people in a crowd of more than 1 million, the man about to get sworn in would see his re-election hinged on the pack onlg of loans the bush administration authorized. there's no way they would believe you. the reason for this strange state of
's not nothing, it's the candidate's time, joe biden going to scranton. i suspect if things keep on the current trajectory, the president might have to go to pennsylvania, bill clinton might have to be there repeatedly. every day they're spending in pennsylvania is a day they're not spending in ohio. the republicans believe, not just rove's group, but some of the others, they believe there's a possibility to at a minimum keep the president on the -- having to not just focus on ohio. and if they can distract him away from ohio to play defense in these other places, they can increase their chances. the democrats totally dismiss this, but there's a reality. they're playing defense. >> you can say dismissive, but mike barnicle, the fact that democrats would put their key asset, bill clinton -- >> in pennsylvania. >> in minnesota today, two stops in minnesota today, that's -- that's worrisome for the democrats. >> yeah. if you -- if you're taking one of your principal assets, the president and the vice president frozen now, the key asset not only your principal asset, your key asset, but one really
his own back channels and the obama white house with by -- vice-president biden. they found that they meet each other as information sources. i believe it was biden, this would not surprise any of you, that was leaking to eric cantor that the speaker was pursuing separate talks with obama during the so-called biden talks of which eric cantor was a part. this may cantor livid. he ultimately walked out of the stocks of mostly because of a the dynamic going on with banner, the of the excuse he gave was that he heard that the democrats to blow this up. as this sounds i'll this to you? >> well, the question i'm going to ask is probably childish. if you walked past the speaker's meaning an open window he would not hesitate to push him. >> actually, they have learned, for one thing, the speaker is a very even tempered man. the less the moment is absolutely right you tend not to be able to get ahead by declaring a mutiny. >> so there is a detente in essence between banner and cantor. >> yes. now, interestingly, working more or less in the middle is the majority whip, kevin mccarthy.
later or a year later and their stories are moving. i give a lot of credit. joe biden's daughter ashley works for the state and has created a remarkable program. a partnership between habitat for humanity, the faith-based community, taking kids and teaching them construction skills, getting them out into the community. when you meet these kids they are growing. we have always got work to do and every time that somebody -- a kid goes into one of those facilities, we have to work harder so we can work ourselves -- >> there are children who are in these programs and we need to continue to fund them. there are children who are not successful who are graduating from the school. we need to identify who those children are early and make sure we take corrective action. it is herod's and sticks. not all carrots. >> some old habits die very hard. this time for closing statements. >> i want to thank you for being here tonight and thank you for your kind questioning and jack for participating. i do think this election is about the economy. it is about jobs and people on food stamps, changing the di
that pleased both with what president obama said and vice president biden said about not being informed and not being in the loop or whatever it was during the vice-presidential debate. and you think what we're seeing in washington right now is this immense turf battle behind the scenes starting to spill over into plain view and it is only because of that speckel that a lot of mainstream media is finally paying attention. jon: why is this story not getting more coverage in the mainstream media? >> you know, i hate to be so reductionist about these kind of things, boils down to the fact it is inconvenient story for the obama campaign and that president obama continually said things that don't square with reality, if you pay attention to that that is bad for obama. you know, this is, the way a lot of the mainstream media responded to this, they responded if this was some sort of unfair october surprise by the romney campaign when in reality this was news. this was real news and the president and his subordinates, including the bam door to the u.n. and his press spokesman have been saying
areas as well. joe biden and paul ryan are on the campaign trail there as well. look at all the attention ohio and wisconsin are getting. here is a look at the "real clear politics" average as the stands today, 47.4% for president obama. 47.3%, we are talking about a one tenth of a percent difference between the candidates, that is well within the margin of error. here is a live look in mill -- excuse me hilliard, ohio. my eyes made that an m, in hilliard ohio where they are waiting right now nor president obama. you see the big forward sign in the background. chris wallace joins me now, the anchor of "fox news sunday," he is live in washington as he prepares to cover what is going to be a very intense several days ahead. good morning, chris, good to see you. >>> good to be with you martha. martha: talk to me a little bit about where they are today, what that tells us and no doubt you've been talking to both campaigns. how do they feel right now? >> reporter: that is the weird thing about this campaign, usually even if the polls are close you can tell by talking to one side
on with bill clinton? right now, for instance, they were still going to have clinton and biden events in youngstown this was supposed to be the second stop. there was a virginia stop that was going to be today, but this was sort of odd last night when the president left. and you wondered, well, what's he going to say this morning at this campaign event? you know, is he really going to go off on a romnesia riff? you know, so this doesn't surprise me at all. >> hey, chuck, a lot happening this past weekend. >> yeah. >> i don't even know where to start. the one thing, though, that you and i can probably agree on here is, it's hard to pick up trends. you see an ohio newspaper poll, oh, wait, okay. >> yeah. >> mitt romney is now even with the president. boy, the president's in a lot of trouble. and an hour later, "the washington post"/abc poll, wait, romney's down four. an hour later "the des moines register" decides they're going to endorse a republican since nixon. a minnesota poll that shows romney within the margin of error in minnesota. there are no trend lines here, are there? >> wel
